Feed Your Soul Ayurveda & Yoga Retreat
January 10 to 12 – Moon Gate Guest House – Whitemouth
Ahh. Take a slow, deep breath…winter is here. Everywhere around you, the natural world is withdrawing, going dormant, and embracing a long, dark, season of slumber. The stillness that characterizes winter signals us to redirect our own energies inward. It is a time to rest and reflect. Winter is considered to be a Kapha season with strong Vata undertones. However, in the Canadian Prairies, Vata is a strong component of winter. So overall, it is recommended to follow Kapha and Vata pacifying guidelines during winter.
Ayurveda will teach you at the Feed Your Soul Ayurveda & Yoga Retreat that like increases like and that opposites balance. The seasons are characterized by the cycles of Vata, pitta, and Kapha. Maintaining good health and balance during all four seasons requires living in harmony with the doshic cycles. The food we eat, the type and amount of exercise we do and the clothes we wear, should all correspond to the seasons.
Cross-country Ski Clinics
January 11 – Birds Hill Provincial Park
Have you ever wanted to know how to properly cross-country ski or need to brush up on your skills? Bring your ski equipment to the Cross-country Ski Clinic and join the Park Interpreter and certified instructors from CANSI (Canadian Association of Nordic Ski Instructors) as you discover how to explore the park in the winter season.
January 12 – Whiteshell Provincial Park
Snowshoe along with a Park Interpreter as you venture to the scenic Pine Point Rapids and discover what makes a Whiteshell winter special. At the rapids, you will warm up in the shelter with hot chocolate. They provide the snowshoes, or bring your own!
